It is just as wrong to offer a bribe as to accept one. Multiple news sources are claiming Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu paid Senator Tom Cotton one million dollars to oppose Iran treaty. If true and I believe, it is true, for Cotton to accept that money was treasonous. It doe not fit the strict definition of treason as written in the Constitution, Article III section 3. However, in my book it is plain and simple, treason for an elected individual to attempt to undercut the President’s Constitutional authority to negotiate with foreign powers. Tom Cotton is a junior senator, a member of the Republican Party only recently elected. Validated news reports claim Israeli Prime Minister and other officials of the Israeli governments attempted to and most likely succeeded, to bribe American legislators in exchange for their support against the deal, and it appears Cotton was one of them. Forty-seven Republicans sent a letter without consulting the administration to the Iranian government to undercut the negotiations. In my mind, all of the 47 are guilty of accepting the bribe.
